Interestingly enough, Bord Bia has shared new research that reveals 2 out of 3 people believe their chipper chips come from local potatoes when in fact, they note that the majority of chipping potatoes are imported into Ireland each year.

This National Potato Day, Bord Bia is encouraging consumers to ask about the country of origin of the potatoes used to cook the chips they consume from their local chipper, or if making chips as a treat at home, make sure to use locally grown potatoes.

‘As part of this year’s National Potato Day celebrations, Bord Bia is highlighting the potential value for money potatoes have when feeding family and friends. The simplicity and versatility of cooking with potatoes means that when you buy a bag there are endless recipe options for every taste and cuisine,’ says Lorcan Bourke, Fresh Produce and Potato Manager at Bord Bia.
